JUST FIVE MINUTES FROM THE 5

From the 5 Freeway

Take the I-5 freeway to Lomas Santa Fe Exit at Solana Beach. Head East. After one mile, you will come to the first stop sign. From this point, the road begins to wind and curve, continue going another four miles to the second stop sign. Go through this intersection and we are the first building on the right, in the Country Squire Courtyard. (Lomas Santa Fe turns into Paseo Delicias).

From 15 Freeway

Exit Via Rancho Parkway. Head West. Follow this road for about three miles to the end. Turn left onto Del Dios Highway and follow for twelve miles. You will come to a four way stop, keep going straight another four blocks into the village. Mille Fleurs is on the left in the Country Squire Courtyard. (Del Dios Highway turns into Paseo Delicias).

From Encinitas

Travel east on Encinitas Blvd. Once you pass the Harvest Ranch Market, just beyond the intersection of Rancho Santa Fe Road and Encinitas Blvd, you will travel over a small bridge and will come to a stop sign, turn right. Follow this winding road until you come to the second stop sign. Turn right onto Avienda De Acacias. Go two blocks and turn left onto Paseo Delicias. Mille Fleurs is on the right in the Country Squire Courtyard.

While there is no question that Pinot Chardonnay is king, as it pairs well with rich seafood and many fowl dishes and has become America’s favorite wine for any time sipping; during the warm days of late spring and summer, many other varietals are better suited for casual enjoyment.

I always prefer a crisper, more refreshing, less tropical and cleaner white wine: so Sauvignon Blanc is well suited and is getting increasingly more popular (as reflected by sales in my restaurants) but one should look to the light Rhone varietals like Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier or Grenache Blanc either from France or California, an AustrianGrunerVeltliner,the Verdicchios and Vermentinos of Italy, not to discount a well-made Pinot Griggio, or sip on the low alcohol Rieslings of Germany.

They are too many of these varietals to name them all here but the idea is to broaden your wine horizons by trying different “cepages”, making your wine drinking a more interesting experience, introducing your friend to your latest find! Most of them will also be far less expensive than a well-regarded Chardonnay.

A knowledgeable wine consultant in your favorite wine shop will certainly be willing to help you in that quest. Now, “Cheers”!
